2016 saw this inaugural cycling event created at the Royal Cornwall Showground, with almost seven hundred visitors enjoying what turned out to be a splendid day.

In the early planning stages, it was at the back of everyone’s mind that it might not take off at all, given that none of the organisers had any real idea how to promote such an event, plus early Spring’s potential to remind us that Winter hadn’t quite gone away yet. The main plan was to be all about cycling. Cycling to get new people on the saddle; ‘returning’ cyclists; young cyclists; older cyclists and an increased awareness about cycling altogether. Headteacher, Denise Gladwell, from local primary school St Breock, was spurred into action after a chance remark by RCS’s Ben Luxton on cycling. Later that evening, along with her husband, Bill, a plan germinated, which grew into an ever increasing plan to create what we now know was a very successful event.

So, 700 ( 2016)  and 1,200 (2017) visitors later, many smiley exhibitor faces; many, many  smiley participant faces as well as a very satisfied organising committee, here we are planning our third, even bigger event for 21st April 2018.  Wheels are already in motion with exhibitors rapidly confirming their attendance - check our Updates page for more details. The format will be based on the previous two events, though we  have developed even more exciting road and off road courses and lots more for everyone to do and enjoy. Please come along and judge for yourself. EVERYONE with a bike and a helmet can take part and enjoy the day.
